The Viking View

November 2019

Welcome to November

As the weather is getting colder please remember to send warm outerwear for your child. If your child is missing jackets, sweatshirts, hats, or gloves please check out the Viking School's lost and found box. It is already overflowing with lost items.

A reminder to parents when dropping off or picking up students. Please do not use the staff parking lot on the north end of the school. We do not want students walking behind vehicles. It is important to keep our students safe. Drop your student off curbside and have them use the crosswalks.

Our school's food drive is off to a wonderful start! Thank you for sending so many items! We will be filling up the Viking pantry and be able to provide support to families that are in need in our community. This coming week items that we are asking for are meals in a box or a can. Keep sending those items!

We are looking for a parent focus group to meet a couple times this year to visit about our Viking School. We would like to share the things we are working on, developing and implementing through the school year with this group and ask for feedback and ideas from the parent group. If you would be willing to serve on this parent focus group please email me and let me know at Thanks!
